Yes long time loans with grace period,being Eu member brings a lot's of advanteges,like Eu fundigs.But i' m affraid that was before this world financinal crises,Eu is put some difficult political conditions lately.In order to avoid such situations ,here we have to look wide..
But ,I think it is always good to take a loan, or money from some other source for important infrustructure projects.

Cohesion Fund is provided for 2014-2020 EU budget.
It has to stay, if EU wants to be sth more than free trade organisation.
Loans are necessity, but they must stay on a safe level in comparison to the income.

Meanwhile, domestic firm BIK from Kragujevac has won the contract to supply 10 CNG buses...






...while Belgrade firm Ikarbus will supply 25 articulated buses that could look like this:











Next year, another 250 more of such buses could be bought.

But the city transport firm is not the only provider of public transport services in Belgrade...there are also a number of private firms, which operate a couple of hundred buses themselves.

So far this year alone, they have introduced some ~130 new buses into the city's transit system:

Those private providers don't use municipal colours?

Actually, I'm not sure if there is such a thing as municipal colors - its been tried but apparently its hard for even the city firm to keep to a single colorscheme I hope this issue will be sorted out in the future.

The best news these days has certainly come in the way of a recent report that an increasing number of Belgraders is opting to use the recently reformed commuter railway system - up to 24,000 people now use this service each day and numbers are expected to grow further, as new stations & lines are added to the system, which for now consists of just one line and nine stations:

It should, because it makes life easier for the passengers, and it's an element of the city visual identity. In Warsaw all bus and tram providers have the same colours. SKM and Metro have it's own. Even adds on the vehicles have been forbidden lately.

For the authorities, the color scheme does not exist as an issue so there’s nothing to be sorted out. For them, the buses are merely advertisement carriers and what’s underneath the ad-wrapping is completely irrelevant.

If all goes according to plan, first line of Belgrade metro will be built by 2017


Alstom Signs Agreement With Belgrade on Subway Construction
QBy Misha Savic - Nov 18, 2011 10:11 AM ET

Quote:
Alstom SA (ALO)’s transport unit and the Serbian capital of Belgrade signed an agreement for the French company to provide trains and technology for Belgrade’s first subway line, the city’s biggest infrastructure project in decades.

Pending a feasibility study and preliminary designs that will be done by Egis Rail, Alstom Transport would provide the equipment for estimated 15 kilometers (9.3 miles) of tracks with 25 stops across the city of 1.64 million people, Belgrade Mayor Dragan Djilas said after signing the memorandum of understanding with Alstom Transport’s Vice President Gian Luca Erbacci.

Serb Deputy Premier Bozidar Djelic and France’s Trade Minister Pierre Lellouche signed a separate “letter of intent” on the governments’ cooperation on the project.

Financing Guarantees

Lellouche said France would help finance the “first phase of the project development,” along with providing 3.8 million euros ($5.14 million) for the studies. He did not elaborate.

Djelic estimated the cost of the entire project at between 900 million euros and 1 billion euros, saying that France would provide guarantees for about a half of that, while Serbia would back Belgrade’s efforts to secure the other half.

“The government will support the project by providing the necessary sovereign guarantees to Belgrade, but we don’t expect this would burden the budget of Serbia,” Djelic said. The expected loan would have 15-year maturity, including a five-year grace period and “an average interest rate of 5 percent, Djelic said.

France and Serbia will form a ‘‘bilateral working group’’ that will supervise the preparations, after which a binding contract may be negotiated between the city and Alstom, the officials said.

France offered last year to fund the studies as it sought to secure the work for Alstom. In April, Presidents Nicholas Sarkozy and Boris Tadic signed a document on broader ‘‘strategic partnership’’ that includes cooperation on the subway.

The studies will be completed in 15 months, including four months for a master plan. The first line may be open as early as 2017, Djilas said.

Will the metro integrate the existing commuter rail underground? Or are they still working out the route?

France is going to provide the remaining EUR 500 million for closing the financial construction for the Belgrade metro. Serbian Deputy PM Bozidar Djelic says that France will turn to international financial institutions in order to gather the money.

Belgrade's public transport firms plans to purchase some 250 new buses next year, largely from local manufacturer Ikarbus. First delivery of 25 buses will happen by February or March.



Meanwhile, ten CNG buses developed by another domestic firm BIK (Bus Industries Kragujevac) in partnership with MAZ of Belarus have just been delivered...










At the same time, deliveries of new CAF trams are proceeding according to schedule - tram #08 is now on city streets while the remainder (30 have been ordered) will be delivered by the end of next year, at a rate of two per month.

It has been said that, if funding allows, another 50 such trams could be ordered after that.

Since February 1st, the new electronic ticketing system called Bus Plus was put into service in Belgrade. It includes both plastic cards and paper tickets which can be used for multiple rides. The system will also monitor vehicle movement and notify passengers about arrival time.
